RAM 2666mhz NUC 9 Extreme - LAPQC71B

Hi everybody,  my new laptop LAPQC71B supports ram 2666mhz . Does the motherboard support an upgrade of ram 3200mhz? Because it is not mentionned and doing this I suspect my computer to be unstable in games.

 

An other question: This laptop has an RTX2070 max Q, but GPUZ shows me that the model is 10DE1F10 and not the maxQ 10DE1F50.  Why?

rtx2070maxq.png

 

And last question, can I change the temperature limit by uploading an other bios, because my card is limited in power at the temperature of 75°C. 

And how can you explain that in performance mode my graphic card consumes 60w for delivering better performance than in normal mode with 80w. I don't understand that with less power, the card deliver more FPS.

 

Thanks for reading and answer me.

shamshir, Thank you for posting in the Intel® Communities Support.


"my new laptop LAPQC71B supports ram 2666mhz . Does the motherboard support an upgrade of ram 3200mhz?", The answer is no, it is recommended, as per specifications, not to use a RAM higher different from DDR4-2666 since that is the max speed supported by the processor and the memory controller is located in the processor itself:

https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/196640/intel-nuc-9-extreme-laptop-kit-lapqc71b.... 


"This laptop has an RTX2070 max Q, but GPUZ shows me that the model is 10DE1F10 and not the maxQ 10DE1F50. Why?", Yes, the laptop works with"GeForce* RTX 2070 Max-Q" as you can see in the link above as well. Since this is a 3rd party tool, you will need to check directly with the manufacturer of GPUZ to confirm why it is not showing as Max-Q, even though in the picture you provided it shows it is the "GeForce* RTX 2070 Max-Q".


" can I change the temperature limit by uploading an other bios, because my card is limited in power at the temperature of 75°C", No, it cannot be changed by uploading another BIOS, the BIOS version for this laptop are available in sour Intel® website:

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/196640/Intel-NUC-9-Extreme-Laptop-Kit-LAPQC71B


The laptop works with the Intel® Core™ i7-9750H, the T-Junction of that unit is 100°C, so any temperature registry below that value is considered normal and expected:

"And how can you explain that in performance mode my graphic card consumes 60w for delivering better performance than in normal mode with 80w. I don't understand that with less power, the card deliver more FPS.", That is exactly what the "performance mode" does, to be able to provide a high performance without that much power consumption and a balanced administration of the resources of the computer.


Any questions, please let me know.

No, you are stuck at 2666. That said, you can get the best DDR4 2666 there is:

https://www.kingston.com/datasheets/KF426S15IB1K2_32.pdf

 

The reason this is the best is the combination of low primary timings, low secondary timings and dual rank.

Specifically you get most of the performance gain for the CL15 timing and 2RX8 layout, the '2' meaning '2' or dual ranks.

 

Almost all DDR4 2666 JEDEC SODIMM RAM has crappy CL timing and/or is only single rank. Look for this specific model number -> KF426S15IB1K2/32.

Its not cheap, but the good stuff usually isn't:
